Once again, we find ourselves having to work in a very different way due to the current situation that our country and the world are facing.
The major strength of Millfields has always been our ability as a whole school community, children, staff, parents, governors and beyond, to pull together. We excel at working together and supporting each other and I know that this will continue, as it did previously, through this difficult time.
As you know, during the last lockdown, staff used an online learning platform to ensure that we gave the children as much support as we could in their continued learning and development. The response to this from the children was phenomenal and your work in supporting the children to access it, made it very successful. This time round, as I have previously said to you, staff have moved to a different platform and prepared children to use it during the autumn term. This has enabled the school to move into remote learning quickly and once again, with your support, it has started brilliantly. The children are really engaged both online and also those who are accessing paper resources.
We are all aware that there will be challenges as we move forward, but please do not hesitate to contact me if you need support with anything. As I have said before, I don't have all the answers, but I can support you in finding out who does.
Stay safe everyone,
